A Cody country music musician has teamed up with some of the biggest names in country music for his newest album.

Kalyn Beasley has released “A Matter Of Time,” an album that features fiddler Jenee Fleenor, the first woman to be named the Country Music Association’s Musician of the Year in 2019. Fleenor went on to win the award two more times in 2020 and 2021. She has performed with Blake Shelton, Steven Tyler, Martina McBride and Rascal Flatts.

The album features some of the best artists and producers from the Texas and Nashville music scenes, like singer-songwriter Jamie Lin Wilson, bringing listeners along for a journey of inspiration and soul-searching.

“A Matter of Time” is Beasley’s third album and first since 2019.

Beasley sprinkles inspiration from traditional country music and mixes it with his own modern style.

He said the interest and pressure he received from fans to produce another album, and the process it takes to put it together, reminded him that excellence in life is often desired but rarely comes easy, a nod to the album’s title.

“A lot goes in to making a record you’re proud of – inspiration, money, opportunity, skill – but mostly time,” Beasley says in a press release. “It’s my hope that you hear a story that resonates with you and maybe offers a little inspiration. That’s really all I’m trying to do: connect.”

Beasley said the album has the highest production value of his releases to date.

Life Lessons

“A Matter Of Time” weaves listeners along an acoustic voyage of fast and slow-paced strains. His single “Nothing You Can Do” tells the story of those kept up late at night, overcome by life’s challenges.

Beasley said he came up with the idea for “Nothing You Can Do” while tending to his ailing dog, Todd.

“He finally let me know when he was ready to exit this world, but I agonized over the decision for months, usually as I laid in bed,” Beasley says in an Instagram post. “The fact is, most of the time there’s not a damn thing you can do about them at that hour, so go ahead and get some rest.”

Another single, “Never Knew Kind of Love,” shares the tale of a young couple in love sharing an intimate conversation. 

“Before The Morning Doesn’t Come” serves as a motivational ballad to stay positive and enjoy life. Beasley based the lyrics around a line in the Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra novel “Don Quixote” describing words as the fabric of thought. 

“I thought that was pretty profound and, most importantly, worth stealing and writing an entire song around,” Beasley posted.

All in all, Beasley said he wants people to appreciate every moment of life’s journey.

“I would say it ain’t the miles,” he said. “It was all a matter of time,” he said.

“A Matter Of Time is available on streaming platforms.
